After a long wait, Green Day has released a new song called ‘Father of All…’ which will form part of their new album that’s slated to be released this coming February. Along with this, the band has also announced a massive 2020 stadium tour called Hella Mega, in which they will be seen playing with other rock acts Fall Out Boy and Weezer. Both the bands too have announced their own new albums, and released debut singles for them.
If the new single from Green Day says anything, it’s that the new album is going to be a big departure from the sound of their previous record, Revolution Radio, released back in 2016. ‘Father of All…’ is an upbeat number featuring overpowering drums and dominant vocals by Billie Joe Armstrong.
On his Beats 1 show, Billie said, “Rock and roll sometimes has become so tame because people are, a lot of rock acts are always trying to look for the feel-good song of the year or something, everything gets really watered down and wimpy, and I think rock music should make you feel bad. We live in just the time of complete and total chaos- or else we’ve always been, but now it’s turned up to Trump. So [the new album] is just trying to reflect what’s going on.”
Weezer’s new song is called ’The End of the Game,’ and will be featured in their new album Van Weezer, which is to be released in May 2020. The band describe’s this record as being similar to their 1994 debut album, but with more “metal, hard rock riffs.” Yet, they also said that the album will have a “pretty catchy pop rock” vibe.
Greatest Hits: Believers Never Die – Volume Two will be name of Fall Out Boy’s new album, while its debut single is called ‘Dear Future (Hands Up).’ This track has the band teaming up with Wyclef Jean.
